Director, Employee Experience, James Sloane’s primary role at Habanero is to look after the quality of our own employee experience. We bring life to work for our clients and James works every day to make sure we are doing the same for every Hab that works at Habanero. He’s also a member of both the OPS (operations, people and systems) and strategy teams at Habanero. James believes meaningful workplace experiences happen when we design the conditions for each of us to continuously grow and do purposeful work while feeling safe and confident being ourselves.
As well as filling his role as Director of Employee Experience, James is a senior experience consultant. In this role he works with clients and Habanero teams to create impactful change by designing exceptional employee and customer experiences. He especially loves strategy work and making sense of the fuzzy front-end of complex problems for our clients. James holds a certificate in servant leadership from Cornell University, a master of environmental design from the University of Calgary, and a bachelor of design from the University of Alberta. Outside of work, James values his time with family and friends, coaching youth soccer, hanging out at the ski hill, and taking in live music whenever he can.
A kick-ass half is better than a half-assed whole.
